Ezekiel 40

The time, manner, and end of the vision.

Ezekiel 40:1 In the twenty-fifth year of our exile at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year, after the city, was smitten, on this selfsame day, came upon me the hand of Yahweh, and he brought me thither: Ezekiel 40:2 In the visions of God, he brought me into the land of Israel,—and set me down upon an exceeding high mountain, and, thereupon, was, as it were, the structure of a city, on the south. Ezekiel 40:3 And, when he brought me thither, then lo! a man, whose appearance was like the appearance of bronze, with a flax-cord in his hand, and measuring reed,—and he, was standing in the gate. Ezekiel 40:4 And, the man, spake unto me, [saying], Son of man, See with thine eyes, And, with thine ears, hear thou, And apply thy heart, to whatsoever I, am about to show thee, For, to the intent it might be shown thee, hast thou been brought hither,—Declare all that thou, seest unto the house of Israel. Ezekiel 40:5 And lo! a wall on the outside of the house, round about on every side,—and, in the hand of the man, was the measuring reed, six cubits by the cubit, and a handbreadth, so he measured the breadth of the enclosing-wall, one reed, and the height, one reed.

The description of the east gate,

Ezekiel 40:6 Then came he unto the gate that looked toward the east, and went up by the steps thereof,—and measured the threshold of the gate, one reed broad, and the other threshold, one reed broad. Ezekiel 40:7 And, the lodge, was one reed long, and one reed broad, and, between the lodges, was a space of five cubits,—and, the threshold of the gate from beside the porch of the gate inwards, was one reed. Ezekiel 40:8 Then measured he the porch of the gate inwards, one reed. Ezekiel 40:9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits, and the projections thereof, two cubits,—and, the porch of the gate, was within. Ezekiel 40:10 And, the lodges of the gate that was towards the east, were, three on this side, and three on that side, one measure, had they three,—and, one measure, had the projections, on this side and on that side. Ezekiel 40:11 Then measured he the breadth of the entrance of the gate, ten cubits—the length of the gate, thirteen cubits. Ezekiel 40:12 And, the space before the lodges, was one cubit, and, one cubit, the space on that side; and, the lodge itself, was six cubits on this, side, and six cubits on that, side. Ezekiel 40:13 Then measured he the gate, from the roof of this lodge to the roof of that, a breadth of twenty-five cubits,—entrance over against entrance. Ezekiel 40:14 Then measured he the porch, twenty cubits,—even unto the projection of the court, the lodges of the gate round about on every side; Ezekiel 40:15 and, from the face of the gate outwards, unto the face of the porch of the inner gate, was fifty cubits. Ezekiel 40:16 And, latticed windows, had the lodges, even towards their projections within the gate, round about on every side, and, so, had the recesses,—and windows round about on every side inwards, and, against each projection, palm-trees. Ezekiel 40:17 Then he brought me into the outer court, and lo! chambers and a tesselated pavement, made to the court round about on every side,—thirty chambers against the pavement, Ezekiel 40:18 And, the pavement, was against the side of the gates, answering to the length of the gates,—the lower pavement. Ezekiel 40:19 Then measured he the breadth, from the front of the lower gate, to the front of the inner court on the outside, one hundred cubits,—to the east and the north.

of the north gate,

Ezekiel 40:20 And, as for the gate which looked towards the north, pertaining to the outer court, he measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof. Ezekiel 40:21 And, the lodges thereof, were three on this side, and three on that side, and, the projections thereof and the recesses thereof, were, according to the measure of the first gate, fifty cubits, the length thereof, and, the breadth, twenty-five, by the cubit. Ezekiel 40:22 And, the windows thereof and the recesses thereof and the palm-trees thereof, were according to the measure of the gate that looked toward the east,—and, by seven steps, they ascend it, and, their recesses, were within. Ezekiel 40:23 And, the gate to the inner court, was over against the gate, to the north and to the east,—so he measured from gate to gate, one hundred cubits.

of the south gate,

Ezekiel 40:24 Then he took me toward the south, and lo! a gate, toward the south,—and he measured the projections thereof, and the recesses thereof, according to these measures. Ezekiel 40:25 And, windows, were there to it, and the recesses thereof round about on all sides, like these windows,—fifty cubits, in length, and, in breadth, five-and-twenty cubits. Ezekiel 40:26 And, seven steps, the ascents thereof, with its recesses within,—and it had, palm trees, one on this side and one on that side, against the projections thereof. Ezekiel 40:27 And, a gate, had the inner court, towards the south,—so he measured from gate to gate, toward the south, a hundred cubits. Ezekiel 40:28 Yea, when he brought me to the inner court through the south gate, then measured he the south gate, according to these measures; Ezekiel 40:29 and, the lodges thereof, and the projections thereof, and the recesses thereof, were according to these measures, and, windows, were there to it, and to the recesses thereof, round about on every side,—fifty cubits, in length, and, in breadth, twenty and five cubits; Ezekiel 40:30 and [there were] recesses, round about on every side;—in length, five and twenty cubits, and, in breadth, five cubits; Ezekiel 40:31 and, the recesses thereof, [reached] unto the outer court, with, palm-trees, against the projections thereof, and, eight steps, were the ascents thereof.

of the east gate,

Ezekiel 40:32 And, when he brought me unto the inner court toward the east, then measured he the gate, according to these measures; Ezekiel 40:33 and the lodges thereof, and the projections thereof, and the recesses thereof, according to these measures, and, windows, were there to it and to the recesses thereof, round about on every side,—in length, fifty cubits, and, in breadth, five and twenty cubits; Ezekiel 40:34 and, the recesses thereof, [reached] to the outer court, with, palm-trees, against the projections thereof, on this side and on that side,—and, eight steps, were the ascents thereof.

and of the north gate.

Ezekiel 40:35 And, when he brought me to the north gate, then measured he according to these measures: Ezekiel 40:36 the lodges thereof, the projections thereof, and the recesses thereof, with, windows, to it round about on every side,—in length, fifty cubits, and, in breadth, five and twenty cubits; Ezekiel 40:37 and, the recesses thereof, [reached] unto the outer court, with, palm-trees, against the projections thereof, on this side and on that side,—and, eight steps, were the ascents thereof. Ezekiel 40:38 And there was a chamber with its entrance, within the projections at the gates,—there, shall they rinse the ascending-sacrifice.

Eight tables.

Ezekiel 40:39 And, in the porch of the gate, were two tables, on this side, and two tables, on that side,—to slay thereon, the ascending-sacrifice, and the sin-bearer, and the guilt-bearer. Ezekiel 40:40 And, at the side without, in ascending to the entrance of the north gate, were two tables,—and, at the other side which pertaineth to the porch of the gate, were two tables. Ezekiel 40:41 Four tables, on this side and, four tables, on that side, by the side of the gate,—eight tables, whereupon they shall slay. Ezekiel 40:42 And, the four tables for the ascending-offering, were of hewn stone, in length, one cubit and a half, and, in breadth, one cubit and a half, and, in height, one cubit,—that, thereon, they may lay the instruments wherewith they shall slay the ascending-offering and the sacrifice. Ezekiel 40:43 And there were, hooks of three hand-breadth, fastened within, round about on every side,—and, upon the tables, the flesh of the offering.

The chambers.

Ezekiel 40:44 And, on the outside of the inner gate, were the chambers of the singers, in the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate, and, their front, was toward the south,—one, at the side of the south gate, fronting, toward the north. Ezekiel 40:45 Then spake he unto me, [saying], This chamber, whose front is toward the south, is for the priests, keeping the charge of the house; Ezekiel 40:46 and, the chamber whose front is towards the north, is for the priests keeping the charge of the altar,—the same, are the sons of Zadok,—who draw near, from among the sons of Levi, unto Yahweh, to wait upon him. Ezekiel 40:47 Then measured he the court, the length, a hundred cubits, and, the breadth, a hundred cubits, foursquare,—with the altar before the house.

The porch of the house.

Ezekiel 40:48 And, when he brought me unto the porch of the house, then measured he the projection of the porch, five cubits, on this, side, and, five cubits, on that, side,—and, the breadth of the gate, was three cubits on this, side, and three cubits on that, side: Ezekiel 40:49 the length of the porch, was twenty cubits, and, the breadth, twelve cubits, and by ten steps they ascend into it,—and there were pillars against the projections, one, on this, side, and, one, on that, side.
